My spider is Version: & VS2010 says Version: ! : Link failure: some assembly references cannot be resolved

I’ve a problem with my spider :
VS2010 Professional generates an Error (Error: a3000000) and refuses to delpoy the projet to my spider…

VS2010 Output Windows says for my program TouchDemo:

Link failure: some assembly references cannot be resolved!!
Assembly: TouchDemo ( needs assembly ‘GHIElectronics.Gadgeteer.FEZSpider’ (
Assembly: GHIElectronics.NETMF.Hardware ( needs assembly ‘GHIElectronics.NETMF.System’ (
Assembly: GHIElectronics.Gadgeteer.FEZSpider ( needs assembly ‘GHIElectronics.NETMF.Hardware’ (
Error: a3000000
Waiting for debug commands…

My spider is Up to date :
But, to be 100% sure :
I’ve dowloaded (Again) GHI NETMF v4.1 and .NET Gadgeteer Package Jan. 6, 2012 & installed (Again)
It installed it (Again) and it ask me to Make Updates of sipder.

I did it (Again) :
Tiny booter updated sucessfully . version Number
Firmaware updated sucessfully . version Number

I’ve rebooted the spider, On the “GHIElectronics.Display_T35” it is written :
Debug & so on…

Then it is not my Spider…
=>I’ve had also to change by removing & adding again the:
Solution Explorer/References : M.GHIElectronics.Button which has a warning

Help :’(

Did you start a new fresh project?

no …

You gave me a good Idea…

I could solved the problem by removing ALL GHI references and (stupidly) re-adding ALL GHI references…

It runs perfectly Thanks !


This is already explained it the beginner’s guide ebook BTW :slight_smile:

Last question Please :
Do we need to remove & re-add again All references each time we update Spider ?

or change your project settings so it doesn’t keep a local copy of the dlls.

OK & Thanks again…
Bye :smiley:
